Putting on the Ritz: 1920s and 30s fashions

26-May-2020 @ 10:30 am
Jubilee Hall

Talk by Carol Harris. In the 1920s and ’30s, women shortened their skirts, bobbed their hair and threw away their corsets. Fashion trends for men and women were set by the younger royals and the emerging Hollywood film industry. This talk looks at the fashions of those inter-war years, and what those clothes say about the lives and interests of, especially, the women who wore them. Tutankhamun, smoking, celebrity culture and new textiles are all parts of the story, and the talk is illustrated with items from Carol’s extensive collection.
